Litter increase could cost UNL
By Kara Korshoj
Staff Reporter
The University of Nebraska-Lin
coln cleanup crews are asking every
one to be tidier.
People who ignore waste contain
ers could be costing the university big
money, said Bud Dasenbrock, direc
tor of Landscape Services.
Littering is up 1 percent this year,
which could pose a problem, he said.
Dasenbrock said a survey was done
several years ago about littering on
campus. Results showed littering cost
the university 2 cents for every wrap
per, cigarette butt and other item of
trash improperly discarded.
The total cost was more than

$35,000 a year to have Landscape
Services pick up the litter. If littering
continues to pile up, Dasenbrock said,
cleanup costs could rise as well.
Dasenbrock said the increase in
litter could be related to the new no
smoking policies enforced in all uni
versity buildings this year.
Dasenbrock said more cigarette
waste containers were placed around
campus and that more will be added.
About 400 waste containers are on
campus. Landscape services will add
more containers where students think
they are needed, Dasenbrock said.
Picking up litter on both City and
East Campuses takes 7,000 hours each
school year, which is 6 percent of
Landscape Services employees’ time,
Dasenbrock said.
These figures do not include “acci
dental” littering, such as papers blow
ing off trucks or wind bringing litter
onto the campus, Dasenbrock said.
Football Saturdays can bring a tre
mendous amount of litter onto the
Kirby Baird, city landscape man
ager of Landscape Services, said it
took five or six employees three hours
each topick up the litter around Me
morial Stadium.
Big Red litter has been a problem
even after 50 to 60 extra trash contain
ers were set up. On the Monday after
a football game, the entire depart
ment must clean up what has been
overlooked, Baird said.
